Everyone in South Africa does what they can to make their home and office safer, understandably so, especially after the recent release of crime stats. We want you to be aware of another high security risk. Cyberattacks happen to every business world-wide. Most people don’t understand how much financial and reputational risk they are exposed to. We need to be more proactive than the e-criminal.

With POPi, it also means failure to take reasonable steps to protect data, a business owner can find themselves in some very serious trouble. This is how we can help…

Included below we have listed three exceptional web/mailbox security products available via our hosting division. In addition, if your business has a website that is not yet POPi compliant, we can do a simple assessment and with the help of our legal partner offer a quote for website changes, legal compliance, documents and company policy. It does not have to be complicated.

As always, we would love to hear from you.
